Due to some recent findings online I must stress this:

DO NOT use my drawings for commercial work, DO NOT reproduce, or sell my images without MY CONSENT!

A concerned appreciator of my work contacted me and found a few of my pieces being sold on cell phone cases on multiple online shops that I did not give any permission to do.  

If you see any of my work being sold from anywhere than directly from my own shop, please do not support the seller!  This goes for any other artists whose work is being stolen, claimed as their own and sold without the approval from the artist.  We work far too long and hard and sometimes without sleep just on a single piece we create with our own creativity, passion and emotions for it to be taken so easily with a push of a button and make money off of us.  Sharing our art is completely fine.  It’s when we get taken advantage of like this is when we must put our foot down.  For a person to have no shame in doing this is terrible.  Seriously!  Why??  Like most people, we want to do what we love for a living and these acts obviously do not support us.  It affects us greatly and hinders.  I don’t want to hold back, I want to keep creating.  I want to keep making things from nothing.  I want to keep making people laugh and smile with the things I draw.  But carefree actions like this really change and get second guessed when such a bad experience like this happens.  

I have already sent a message to the guy selling my work on Etsy and his Wanelo shop, professionally and politely asking him to take down my work from his shop.  I have yet to receive any response still.  I don’t wish to take any aggressive action yet, but I will if I must for the pieces I worked so hard on.

I am genuinely saddened and aggravated by this.  I very much dislike feeling this way.  If you know me or have taken a moment to talk to me at conventions, you know I am a chipper fellow.  So having to post something like this is very much out of the ordinary for me but necessary.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and for your continued support.

You’re all beautiful and smell lovely, by the way :)

Super exciting last minute news!!! My Elvira pieces will be displayed at the Elvira Mistress of the 'ART' Show gallery in Los Angeles this Saturday November 9th! I'll be there along with 20+ other artists contributing their own Elvira inspired pieces. And of course the Mistress of the Dark herself, Elvira, will be there! I am beyond thrilled to be a part of this event!!    

The gallery will be held right next to the Monster-a-gogo store (aka Kreepsville666) 7361 Melrose Ave.
I believe Elvira will only be there from 12pm-3pm, but the gallery will be open until 8pm. If you are in the area and have that gothic itch you'd like to scratch, then come on by and I'll see you in black

HERE I COME NEW YORK!! Are you ready for this jelly? ...yeah, me neither, but I'm showing up anyways  I'll be at the New York Comic Con October 10-13 at the Javits Center booth #CC13. I'm so excited to go to this con and hopefully meet some of you east coast blokes and gals that have been supporting my work. (Yep, I'm talking to all 3 of you)
I didn't expect a table to be available for me sooo very very very close to the con, so I was plenty shocked to get one. Now I'm frantically making the plans for this awesome trip to the big apple. I'm looking forward to seeing you crazy kids there and debate about bagels and putting ketchup on hot dogs

NOTE: Unfortunately NY Comic Con lands on the same weekend as APE Con in San Francisco CA, which I was originally planning to go to. I've told quite a few people that I'll see them there, but now I'll have to cancel that con sadly

This'll be my first time attending an anime convention as an artist. I usually don't bother going to anime related cons because my work has barely any relation to it, but what the heck! Let's give it a try and if it doesn't go well, I hear the Winchester Mansion is a nice place to visit this time of the year.
Hope to see you there! :D

Yeah yeah... I know Halloween is over, but if you're a hardcore fan of that time of the year, it doesn't matter :)
This year I scared at the Knott's Berry Farm theme park for the Halloween season.
The theme for this year was all about the Green Witch. Her and her little tricksters would roam the entire park terrorizing whoever they please and doing whatever they want, even go into any maze in the park.
The maze I scared at was called Trick or Treat, which was the Green Witch's house. The monsters inside would be of the classic costumes from back in the day; Devil, black cat, sheet ghost, Frankenstein's monster, clown, pig, skeleton, etc. I was classic Dracula :) I would get tons of Twilight comments thrown my way on a nightly basis, but the amount of terrified screams and tears we'd get from the guests would make it all worth it. The best scares would be from the ones that just collapse to the floor :D

Here's a flow through of our maze from Theme Park Adventure:

and here's an excellent review from them:

It's that awesome time of the year again kids!  HALLOWEEN!!!  Bring on the scary amusement park mazes, candy corn that no one eats, turn up the Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack and pumpkin flavored everything!
Speaking of scary mazes, I'm going to be a monster again at Knott's Halloween Haunt for my second year!  Here's the commercial for it:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cv69cR…;
Last year I was a zombie farmer at the Cornstalkers maze.  You can check out the Cornstalker maze walk through here:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ujAKo…;
I pop out at 3:35 :) This year I'll be at a new maze called Trick or Treat.  I don't want to say what monster I am because friends will try to talk to me while I'm trying to scare, but I'll definitely be interacting with everyone that goes through that maze.  Muwahahaha!!

If you and your friends are going to Knott's for this Halloween season, I recommend you check out this other new maze called Trapped.  The maze takes 25-30 min to complete and each group has a designated time slot to go into it so it will be just your group in the maze that all the monsters give their attention to.  There will be a series of rooms that your group must enter with the doors locking behind you and the only way to proceed is to do certain tasks the monsters tell you to do.... one of them I hear is that you must eat specific things even  I don't know what they are.  The maze is said to be so discomforting that they make you and your friends sign a waver at the beginning and they also provide you with a safe word if the experience is just too much for you to handle.  Now onto the the downside of this maze.  There's a separate fee you must pay to go through this maze.  But for what it is, it's pretty cheap.  For  a group of 10 people I believe they'll charge $60.  You do the math.

This Saturday 9-22-12, I'll be at Frank and Son Collectible Show with my own booth selling some prints and possibly taking commission sketches.  www.frankandsonshow.net/
It's a bi weekly free comic convention in the City of Industry.  This is where I go when I have Comi Con withdrawls :)

Hope to see you at Knott's Halloween Haunt and Frank and Sons!

Trick or Treat and Happy Halloween month!
